​Why will it get cancelled its there normal price...

Cheers op.

Very cheap for a 50w, I have installed a 30w version of these and it let water in till it filled up with water and shorted out the LED chip. Had to put in a new chip and then sealed it up with bathroom sealant and it has worked since. Would recommend using a tube of sealant during install between the glass front and the area that reflects out the light to avoid water getting in. Also a lot of these (not sure about the pro elec ones) don't come with an earth so technically they would need a small earth bolt and connection made to meet uk standards.

Applying sealant is very good advice; the same thing happened to me. The Motion Sensor became water logged and stopped working.

Seems very cheap since it's £52.69 elsewhere on the site: http://cpc.farnell.com/pro-elec/jf03-p1w50-s/led-floodlight-with-pir-50w/dp/SR09562

Gone for it though

Sadly many of these Led Floodlights are like this one only rated at IP44 which you could use in a outside building or covered area. In most gardens you would need at least a rating of IP65.

Careful. I have 3 of these, paid around the same. The 50w ones have a bit of a design flaw. The plastic mount for the PIR is the same length on all sizes of lamp, but the 50w has such a big lens, the PIR at best is pointing down 30 degrees. As such, these needed to be mounted very high indeed, minimum 5m I'd say. The first one I mounted at a height of 2.5m, and the PIR had a range of only 4m, as PIR was looking down too much, even when as high as it would go.

Bought one of these last winter. It's fantastic with a very white light. I'd buy another if I had anywhere to put it.

Can I use it indoors? What does it plug into?

One rule and one rule only here when buying something of this nature...

Buy cheap, buy twice!

Total false economy. These are not built to last. I have been to a lot of factories in China where these are made and I have also broken down a large number of these from UK suppliers. They are cheap and nasty and generally do not confirm to basic standards required to be sold in the UK.

Its not designed for inside, but if you wanted to you could, it doesn't plug in, you have to wire it up yourself.

So what brands do you recommend? Many companies sell unbranded lights or lights with made up brand names so it's difficult to know what's good.

Thanks for that very useful link to IPnn.
I replaced my waterlogged PIR motion sensor light with this IP65 80W.
Love the light; hope it survives the winter.

wow, this is very cheap, saw these a couple of years ago for over £100 !

Looking for quite a few PIR lights, 2 for out front of house, 2 at back. Can anyone recommend anthing? No idea what wattage I would/should use or whether LED or not. Thanks!

Followed your advice and got two of them :-)

Joking aside, these are fantastic for the price. Anyone with basic electricity knowledge can add sealant to ensure they last longer and don't short. The height these are installed at means that no kids will get their hands on them. CPC couldn't sell them if they didn't conform to basic standards required to be sold in the UK.

Good luck with that one Very bad reviews op probably last longer with a bit of sealant

Site under maintenance?

I like the Biard LED units. I've got one over 2 years old. zero issues.

I can't really understand why people are saying these are going to be faulty, if it develops a fault simply return it, CPC are great I have returned things before with no issues with credit given straight away

LOL some people...

Pro Elec stuff as sold by CPC conforms to Uk standards. I don't know the IP rating on this light (their site is down ATM) but if Pro Elec were shipping CPC lights with metal bodies that were not earthed CPC's engineers would have a fit.

Did you manage to fix it after water got into the motion sensor? I think I've got the same problem, is it easy to dismantle and then seal up again?

I dried it out, but the PIR circuit would not work. The light still worked, but the motion sensor did not.
As it was primarily there to security light the back garden, I had to dump it and have replaced it with this
IP65 80Watt

Yeah I know, there vs their.

Hardly a decision worth shouting about given the review comments on Amazon for this light. You may as well have hung your £25.73 in cash on a hook and set fire to it.... better value for money!

Do these lights reflect heat well with tinfoil, as I need my plants to grow quicker.

I'm just asking a question.............

Bloody world gone LED mad,,,, just had had my street lighting changed to LED,LED lamp post right outside my house, my bedroom is now illuminated like a dam football stadium , thanks council to55ers !!

​JCC make excellent floodlights, I have installed and supplied nigh on a 100 of them in the last 4 years, no problems so far

It is IP44 rated so that's me out.

Roughly - How much would it cost to get an electrician to fit one of these?

Great, thanks op

I can confirm to all that, unlike many, this model does have an earth wire, and it was actually bolted to the body. Why these all come with just 20cm of flex though is beyond me...

I had one fitted once up high on my house and was about £60 in the Midlands, but there was already electricity going up there to a previous light.

I bought the 30W one from LED Hut and was amazed at the brightness and thought pretty highly of the quality of the build, can't speak for the ones listed.

Yup need IP65 for outside, unless it's dry all year round.
